We have a business card!

Yes, in Nilsiä we finally did it. We got ourself a business card. You see it above. We found a photostore, Syvärin kuva and a nice lady, Jaana Rovio who helped us with the technical part. And well then there was the photo to be taken…

By asking a couple of persons the question ”Are you a professional photographer?” the first answered no, the second said ”-Yes, how did you know?”. The person was Tauno Kasanen who have had the firm Foto-Kasanen Ky between 1963-2006 in Nilsiä. Well, yes, a real professional photographer took our photo! Thank you Tauno and Jaana / Kiitos Tauno ja Jaana!

Before leaving Nilsiä we went to the Kermilän kivet, the Kermilä stones, that is a memory of the Taskinen ancestors. The stones have been placed there by the Taskinen-Taskila sukuyhdistys and physically put on place by Heikki Kainulainen (my fathers cousines husband who we stayed at in Nilsiä) and Pekka Taskinen (my cousin).

Kinahmi, behind this mountain my father was born in Laitisenmäki

We passed Sänkimäki. Near a sightseeing tower we met other bikers, with a motor, that was Kari and Päivi Jauhiainen from Nilsiä. 

In the crossing to the big road to Siilinjärvi we bought a kalakukko from a teacher from the Tornion ammattikoulu, it is interesting how good a business card is in those moments.

Before Siilinjärvi we met a biker, with own motor. That was Seppo Tolonen who bikes every day to work – good! Thank for the nice talk!

We were very late to my cousine and his wife, Pekka and Sinikka Taskinen in Vuorela, about 10 km north from Kuopio. They had prepared a good meal, really good! Kiitos Pekka ja Sinikka!

When we came to Kuopio it was late. We could see the famous tower of Puijo from distance. My cousin (yes, I have many!) Pertti Rönkkä met us and we could use his empty apartment for sleeping over. Thank you Pertti!
